A subjective evaluation on mixtures of crowdsourced audio recordings [pdf]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
Exploiting correlations in the audio, several works in the past have demonstrated the ability to automatically match and synchronize User Generated Recordings (UGRs) of the same event. Considering a small number of synchronized UGRs, we formulate in this paper simple linear audio mixing approaches to combine the available audio content. We use data from two different public events to perform a comparative listening test with the goal to assess the potential of such mixtures in improving the listening experience of the captured event, as opposed to when each UGR is consumed individually. The results of the listening tests indicate that, even with just a small number of overlapping UGRs, the outcome of the mixing process gains higher preference in comparison to original UGRs played back individually.
